‘Get the Look’ – Latin GRAMMY’s

The 15th Annual Latin Grammys took place on November 20th and L’Oréal Paris returned for their 3rd year as their official cosmetic sponsor for the night. Did you guys see Genesis Rodriguez & Chiquinquira Delgado on the red carpet? They looked absolutely beautiful and thanks to L’Oréal Paris, you can re-create those looks yourself!

Genesis wanted a vampy look but with a modern twist and that is exactly what  L’Oréal Paris Pro-Team Artist Rene Lam created. Rene mixed bronze and plum shades to create a subtle smokey eye. For the lips, Rene went burgundy since it complimented Genesis’s dark red dress.

For her hair, L’Oréal Paris Celebrity Hair Stylist Marcos Carrasquillo was inspired by Rihanna’s look at the American Music Awards. He gave her Hollywood Waves but added large bobby pins to not only hold the hair to the side, but accessorize it and made it stand out.

Chiqui wanted a natural look to compliment her beautiful yellow gown and a very classic Hollywood glam hair style. Franz Munoz nailed it by adding brown and nude shades to her eyes and finishing her complete look with romantic loose waves.

What’s Influenster?

Influenster is a community of tastemakers, social media hotshots, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences. In Influenster Nation, influence is currency.

Basically you sign up on their site (send me your e-mail address if you would like me to personally send you an invitation) and they pick their most active and social media savvy members to qualify for campaigns. These campaigns vary from interactive Twitter chats, fun contests and special discounts to my personal favorite…. the all mighty VOXBOX! Voxbox’s contain complimentary full size products that you test and then review to share your opinions on the products.

Here’s a look at some past VoxBox’s I qualified for:

Yes – I got that whole set for FREE! These polishes have now become my favorite and I would not have had the chance to test the brand out if it wasn’t for Influenster.

Influenster isn’t all about just getting free products, I also use this website to check our reviews of products I’m interested in or iffy about purchasing. The community leaves REAL & HONEST reviews to help you discover products in the marketplace. There’s also The Hub which is basically the Influenster blog filled with articles on topics like Beauty, Food, Lifestyle etc. I love checking this section daily! They also have launched an app which gives you all of the Influenster knowledge in the palm of your hand …literally.

Old Factory Candles

With the Holidays around the corner we are all trying to figure out the perfect gift for our loved ones. One of my go to gifts is candle sets. Who doesn’t love their homes smelling fresh and clean? I recently discovered the company Old Factory and I was instantly blown away by their candles. Old Factory candles are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming cotton candle wicks, and premium fragrance oils. The Old Factory Candle Gift Sets each contain 3 different scented candles. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someones in your life. Old Factory Candle Gift Sets are sold exclusively on Amazon.

I decided to go with the “Happy Holidays” set since Christmas is quickly approaching.

The set contained 3, 2 oz, jars. Each candle should burn for 20 hours.

While Ginger Bread is my favorite scent, Christmas Tree & Candy Cane both smelled good enough to eat also. Even though these jars are small, they pack a big punch! Once you open the lid the scent is very strong and the little 2 oz jar had my kitchen and dining room smelling like it was ready for all the Holiday fun!!

I think my next set will be ‘Spa Day‘.
